The Standing Field Committee in Econometrics of the Verein für Socialpolitik consists of about 120 leading researchers in econometrics and applied statistics, that either work primarily in Germany, Austria and Switzerland or have a strong relation to these countries. The research profiles of empirically working members include labor markets, health, education, trade, crime, macro economics and financial markets. Methodologically, members work on time series, panel as well as microeconometric problems and develop transparent solutions for increasingly large, in part high-dimensional date sets.
Prof. Schienle holds the chair of the committee since June 2019.
The committee meets regularly at the end of February for its annual conference.
The next conference will take place from 27 February to 29 February in Rauischholzhausen.
A list of all members can be obtained from the chair by request.
